Celebrate the Ocean

As we celebrate Earth Day, we can’t overlook the largest and wettest part of our planet – the ocean! Vast and awe-inspiring, the ocean is where life began billions of years ago and continues to be an important part of our everyday lives. As you celebrate the Earth, remember to also celebrate the ocean.
